ALEXANDRIA. SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 19._ As anticipated, the Mahone-Wise bat. tie has been transferred from Petersburg to Chicago, and will be fought out there, and republicans seem to be by no means certain that the war of the factions will end with the adjournment of tho Chicago convention. They sorrowfully admit that never before were republican politics in the State in such a disjointed and bellicose condition. Not a dollar to a hundred would now be wsgered on the republicans carrying Virginia in No? vember. As to Sherman, the rupturo of his party in this State is regarded as very un? fortunate for him. He was to have had a walkover for the twenty-four vote3 of the State. Now bo has a contest attended by great dauger of giving serious displeasure to the Blaine management, who may avail themselves of this chance to strike at him over the shoulders of their enemy, Mahone. For, even in the improbable event that Mr. Blaine shall stand by his reiterated with? drawal, it will hardly be ...
